Tawam Hospital Performs Life-Saving Surgery on 15-Year-Old Emirati Boy After Serious Car Accident

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, 10 July 2024: Tawam hospital recently demonstrated the remarkable expertise of its medical team with their timely intervention in saving the life of a 15-year-old Emirati boy who was in critical condition following a severe car accident that resulted in significant brain haemorrhage.

The young patient, who had fallen into a coma and was unresponsive, was swiftly transported to Tawam Hospital’s emergency department, part of the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA). The hospital's skilled medical emergency trauma team in the children's emergency unit implemented advanced resuscitation techniques to stabilise the boy.

An urgent CT scan revealed a severe brain haemorrhage, placing substantial pressure on delicate brain tissues and posing an immediate threat to his life. The young patient was transferred to the operating room, where he received specialised care from a highly experienced team of neurosurgeons led by Dr. Mohammed Al-Asha, Head of the Neurosurgery Division. The neurosurgical team's expertise and prompt action played a pivotal role in successfully stopping the bleeding and removing brain-clot compression, averting permanent damage for the young boy in a critical situation.

Following the successful surgery, the patient was transferred to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, where he required an extended period of anaesthesia and respiratory support. The pediatric Intensivist team, led by Dr. Nidal Omar Al-Hashaykeh, Head of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Tawam Hospital, stabilized the patient’s condition and provided necessary supportive care, enabling the young patient to make a remarkable recovery and regain his neurological functions almost entirely.

The patient's family shared their heartfelt gratitude, saying, 'In our darkest moments, we found hope and comfort at Tawam Hospital. We cannot express our appreciation enough to the amazing team who treated our son with the utmost care and expertise. His revival was a miracle, and we are indebted to every doctor, nurse, technician, and staff member in this hospital who gave us hope and strength in times of despair. Thank you, Tawam Hospital, for bringing back our son's smile and happiness to our family.'

Dr. Hilal Matta, Chair of Surgery Departments and Pediatric Surgery Chief said: 'This achievement underscores the outstanding capabilities of Tawam Hospital with its state-of-the-art infrastructure and highly experienced teams. The critical importance of expert collaboration and timely intervention cannot be emphasized enough, particularly in cases involving severe injuries, especially within the pediatric department. Tawam Hospital continues to set a shining example of excellence in healthcare, prioritizing the well-being and recovery of our patients.'

Dr. Dalal Al Mansouri, Chief Medical Officer – Al Ain Region said: 'We take pride in the dedication of Tawam Hospital's remarkable team, whose seamless collaboration in critical cases exemplifies their unwavering commitment. Their adherence to the highest standards of medical care set by PureHealth and SEHA ensures that every patient entrusted to us is given the best possible chance for a healthier future.'

During his recovery journey, the patient received unparalleled care from a multidisciplinary team of experts, including surgical and medical teams, as well as rehabilitation and nursing teams. Through its unwavering commitment, SEHA maintains its unwavering dedication to enriching lives and fostering a positive impact on individuals and communities. This steadfast commitment consistently reinforces Abu Dhabi and the UAE's global reputation as a leading healthcare hub and a pioneer in groundbreaking medical accomplishments.
